Baked bananas foster oatmeal. A warm and comforting breakfast that is like eating dessert when you wake up. Inspired by a classic dessert, this oatmeal will get you going in the morning.
Now THIS is a breakfast treat. Bananas foster is one of life’s best desserts and now you can enjoy it for breakfast. (This will even get your kids to eat oatmeal). With just 5 ingredients (in addition to the oatmeal and milk), this comforting breakfast is hearty, full of flavor and will keep you going all the way to lunchtime.
What led me to this recipe was my regular daily oatmeal. I usually just top it with fresh fruit and nuts and thought it was not only time for a change, but for a treat. And treat it is! The oats are mixed with brown sugar, cinnamon, milk and vanilla then baked to creamy perfection.
The really tasty topping is sliced banana, coated in melted butter then sprinkled with brown sugar and broiled until golden and bubbly. Now this is tasty way to start the day.
Think about when you’re cruising through the supermarket, have you ever noticed the end caps? What’s an end cap you ask? The end caps are featured displays at the ends of the aisles marketed to give presence to product (oh yeah, those). I’d say they succeeded with this Quaker® display at my local Target store. You can also find Quaker® oats in the cereal aisle, right under the oatmeal sign.
From now until 12th March 2016, Quaker® are encouraging everyone to ‘Bring your best bowl‘.
